You can transfer your projects by backing them up. Here is a post about how to backup projects. You will need to backup each individual project.

Please note that Google Drive backup is currently not working so be sure to use other methods.

Hope this helps!

If you long-press on a project in Project View, you'll see a cloud icon on the top right of the screen. Clicking this will bring up the options to export your project. Exported projects can then be imported into FlipaClip on other Android. devices

Unfortunately we don't have a method to save projects and load them at another device. However, we do have plans to add this feature very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience. :(

Any news on this guys. My galaxy note2 still works but has a shattered screen. I cant draw with it. Really need a save n back up before I replace my phablet.

Hey thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, we don't have a way to export a project. However, we do understand this is very important feature and we are already planning it.

Any timescale  available? Need to decide what to do... lose 6 months work or wait. Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.

PS not really exporting I'm  after, just a project file that any "flipaclip" enabled device  can open.

Not sure if it is an option, but you could export each screen (screen capture) and put it together on your computer with another software.
Or wait till the flipaclip team implements "import images feature"

Hey, we really don't want you to loose your work. We understand how horrible it is to work on a project and just loose it. I have to be honest with you, this backup feature will come but it might take a month until you see it. It takes this long since we are already in the middle of working on other new features. But again we know that a way to save and export a project to another device is very important for this type of app.

Yes, I understand. If you really need to get to the actual images you could use a file explorer and copy the images. The images will not necessarily be numbered in the correct order and some frame numbers might be skipped.

Project images are located under
sdcard/Android/data/com.vblast.flipaclip/files/projects/

Image file name
f#_#.png -> The first # is the frame number and the second is the layer number.

Hey, no promises, but I have started looking into this. It might be possible that I can provide this feature on the next update. At the least will be in beta state but should help hopefully. :)
